A word from Loteria Grill - Hollywood
Jimmy Shaw opened the first Lotería! Grill in the summer of 2002 at the Farmers Market in Los Angeles, and ever since has been serving our guests a menu full of regional Mexican specialties as delicious as what he grew up enjoying in Mexico City.

Diner Reviews
  • "My entree (sea bass) was super delicious with a nice spicy sauce and the tortillas were really good - we kept asking for more! The highlight of the meal, though, was the brownie shortbread dessert (I'm calling it this vague name because I can't remember exactly what it was called). It had spiced pepitas on top and a yummy sauce. I would go back just to have a few bites of this dessert! Really great service as well. My friend was an hour late and four different staff members (servers, bussers) kept checking to see if I was cool, wanted to order something, answered my questions about where she should park, etc.--they kept me company, basically! :-)"

  • "I went there on a Sunday afternoon and there was hardly anyone there. The bus boy came up to us and took our drink order immediately. He was very friendly and everything seemed to go fine since our drinks did arrive quickly. We placed our food order immediately for a party of 3. 20 minutes went by and no food yet. A party of 6 came in and another one of 2, both of those tables were given their food before ours! We tried being patient but after those 2 parties left and we still had no food! The bus buy came up to us to ask if everything was ok, we must have looked upset by now. We asked WHY was our food taking soo long and he went to ask the kitchen and came back to apologize for the delay. 15 mins later food arrived. food was very bland."

  • "The strawberry margaritas are not very good (they seem to use a syrup that is too sweet and tastes fake). However, their Cadillac margaritas are great!1"

  • "The service is VERY slow and the waiters appeared to be bothered that we were taking up their precious time. It took quite some time once we were seated for a waiter to come help us and this was after the manager noticed us looking right at him. Thank goodness that the kitchen has the talent to make up for the bad service. The food is delicious. Horrible service though. The best and hardest worker in the place was the bus boy. Improve the service of the wait staff and this place would be great!"

  • "My friends ordered tacos. Damn, those tacos look like the size of silver dollar coins. $10 for two seem ridiculous. I had the nachos, better value."

  • "We have been here NUMEROUS times and LOVE the food.....we had made a 7pm reservation and they seated us before a walk-in....that was nice.....the waitress was nice but would rarely stop and talk....she would comment and keep walking.....had to ask for a glass of wine 3 times and also ask for the check 3 times.....a large group of men kept singing (3 times) HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a woman at another table....it was VERY annoying....we get ONCE, but THREE times?????...would we go back...ABSOLUTELY.....but will probably to the one in the Valley instead..."

  • "I arrived 30 mins early for my 6:30 reservation, where I was meeting two other friends for dinner. My table was already ready and waiting, with the menus set and everything. Good was good, drinks were good, but the chips and salsa were AWESOME. Would definitely go back next time I'm in the area!"

  • "After stumbling across Loteria Grill at the Farmer's Market a few months ago, we made the connection that there is also a Loteria Grill in Hollywood. We've been twice now and love the city ambiance and delicious authentic Mexican dishes. I grew up in Austin and have lived in LA for 17 years now and have struggled to find an upscale Mexican restaurant in the Hollywood area that serves high quality Mexican food. The search is over. You can't go wrong with Loteria Grill from the awesome Chilaquiles to Ceviche (try all three) to the Enchiladas to the beef and fresh fish dishes. All top notch. And it's great to have a Mexican restaurant with a classy city vibe in the heart of Hollywood. "

  • "I live in the neighborhood and used to love it here. This night, my reservation was ignored. Our server, kept insisting on me ordering the salad she liked and not the one I wanted. Our FAVORITE Tamarind margueritas had absolutely no evidence of tamarind. No seeds or pulp like there has always been. Tasted like orange juice. The pitcher we ordered was poured by our server so fast at the table all the ice made the liquid go flying everywhere. Our food was cold and "the special" my friend ordered was charged al a carte instead of the "special" price she mentioned and again insisted she order. We order 2 tequila shots and one beer. We had to ask 3 times to bring them. The whole experience? HORRIBLE! "

  • "This was my third visit to Loteria and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the tequila selection was abundant. We especially loved the ceviche and probaditas. Our server, Noche, was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. We ate before a show at the Pantages and went back afterward for dessert. Can't wait to return."

  • "Went here before an event at the Dolby based on Open Table reviews. This place did not disappoint!! The staff was incredibly welcoming and attentive. The space is vibrant with a beautiful bar and great patio area, perfect for watching all of shenanigans along Hollywood Boulevard. But the real standout was the food. Great margarita and michelada menu. Incredibly fresh and tasty ingredients (our group had enchiladas suit as, enchiladas mole and a burrito crane desebrada). And fantastic fresh tasty guacamole. Will go here again. ,"

  • "Had a great meal with my wife... drinks and food were excellent.... only disappointment was that they were offering the taste of LA menu (we did not go there knowing this), so my wife went with this 3 course option and I ordered off the regular menu. For my wife, the appetizer was to die for and the main course was delicious... then came the issue... when she ordered her meal. she picked the churros with dipping sauce, but when it came time for desert, our server told her they were out of that choice (since it was 5:30 when we ordered, that would be pretty early to run out) she asked for the second choice (there were 3 options for dessert) which was cheesecake, and she was told again, they were out of that as well. Ended up with Flan."

  • "Every item our party of six experienced, was ¡muy bien! The tacos arrachera; carnitas en salsa morita, in a flavorful spicy chile sauce; and ochinita pibil, achiote & citrus marinated pork, that was slowly roasted in a banana leaf. Chef Shaw's specialty for the evening - was red snapper (perfectly seared) in a tomato, onion, olive and caper sauce. It was served with black beans, white rice, & plantains for $21. This "feature" was certainly worth its ticket-price. Oh, Hollywood. The margaritas Pepino (cucumber) are refreshing while the jalapeño has kick - both magnified our dining experience."

  • "This is the second time I go to the Latoria in Hollywood and so far both occasions have been very satisfying. This weekend my mother and I were unfortunately late to the restaurant due to traffic and the host was very accommodating and quick on sitting us. The food was delicious and the drinks were strong. Have no complaints."

  • "So this restaurant has a good name, great looking website, and the decoration is interesting.. However, the food is HORRIBLE! The food is described as authentic and homemade, authentic or not it has to be good and if you're going to describe it as homemade then it better not look like it came out of a can. Our appetizers were the chicken quesadillas, they came hot (good). The quesadilla itsef was a round flower tortilla folded over with some boiled chicken, semi-raw tomatoes and a slice of mozzarella. Really Mozzarella? The chicken, though cooked thoroughly, was plain and had not seasoning whatsoever. This is probably why the tomatoes were put in there, yuk!! The rest of our meal was worse, but I am out of room. Don't Come here!"
